CNET Tech companies: Do as Bond would do. “The head of a government-based venture capital firm pleaded to the information technology industry: Be like James Bond.”

“The fictional British spy used technology to his advantage when tracking down criminal masterminds. But in the real-world fight against terrorism, the situation shouldn’t be different, Gilman Louie, chief executive of In-Q-Tel, said during a keynote speech at the TechXNY trade show here.

“‘I am asking all of you in this room to do one thing: to think about how we can employ these technologies to give ourselves a competitive edge,’ Louie said. His speech, called ‘James Bond Saves the USA,’ stressed that the government’s ability to analyze and distribute information quickly is the greatest weapon it has in diffusing terrorist threats.”

Hmmm… Where have I heard this before?
